The Kittitas County Sheriff's Office reported that an Issaquah man died Saturday night after falling 40-50 feet down a rock cliff and landing in shallow water at Lake Kachess, west of Cle Elum.
Glenn Williams, 51, stopped in a remote area at Exit 62 off Interstate 90 to look at the view with his wife and daughter, according to a news release.
Rescue services responded to the call at about 9:20 p.m.
The Sheriff's Office said a private boat transported Williams to shore where he was pronounced dead.
The cause of the fall and his death are still under investigation. Alcohol appeared to have been a factor in the incident, the release said.
